Dr. Anna ("Annie") Nord D.M.D.

Dr. Nord was born and raised in Bloomington-Normal.  She graduated valedictorian from University High School and Magna Cum Laude from Illinois Wesleyan University.  At Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine she graduated Cum Laude, won the Dean's Scholarship Award and awards in both Implant and Restorative dentistry.  She is a member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, Illinois State Dental Society, Chicago Dental Society and McLean County Dental Society.  On September 1, 2017, Dr. Nord took over the practice of Dr. Daniel Milligan and has been serving his patients, and new patients, ever since.

"I love getting to know my patients and hearing about their lives. I try to treat everybody like family, in that I want them to receive the best possible dental care.  I'm confident in my growing knowledge in the field of dentistry and treat people with honesty and compassion."   

Dr. Nord is a member of the Arrow Study Club, an affiliate of Seattle Study Club.  She has made a commitment to lifelong learning to provide her patients with the best care and newest techniques currently available in dentistry.  As a member of the Arrow Study Club, Dr. Nord spends time outside the office at monthly meetings to keep up on the latest developments and treatment options available to patients.  

Annie is a mother and enjoys spending time with her family.  She likes working out and doing just about any outdoor activity such as golfing, fishing, and hunting.  Growing up she was a trampolinist and a member of the USTA National Tumbling and Trampoline Team for 8 years.  She was involved in several activities and sports in high-school and college such as basketball, tennis, cheer leading, student council, playing piano, and chorus.  She traveled twice to Honduras with the IWU Global Medical Brigades for medical mission trips and to Jamaica with the Christian Dental Society to provide free dental care for those who could otherwise not afford it.  Annie studied abroad in Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands and is a conversational Spanish speaker.  She has also competed in several pool tournaments and has won the women's division of the ICMOA 8-ball State Tournament.  

Dr. Daniel L. Milligan D.D.S., retired

Dr. Milligan practiced dentistry in Bloomington, IL from 1976 until September, 2018, when he retired from Nord Dental Center.  Dr. Milligan was an exceptional mentor for Dr. Nord through her years in college, dental school, and her first 14 months of private practice.  Although he will be missed by many patients, he is very confident that he has left them in great hands, under the care of a dentist who shares the same principles and values in dentistry and in life.  


"I always recommend for my patients exactly what I would do for myself or my own family.  And I honestly try to do my very best for each and every patient, each and every day.  I knew from the very beginning that these principles and a quality education would make up the foundation of my dental practice."
